Screening
This event is occurring on Oct. 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Church of the Redeemed of the Lord (4321 Old York Road, Baltimore, MD  21212). As part of NKF-MD’s mission of early detection and early intervention, this free screening will identify early markers for high blood pressure, diabetes and kidney disease. No appointments are needed for the screening and any adult can participate.

Lasting about 20 minutes, the screening includes blood pressure and weight checks, as well as counseling with a doctor and dietician. Additionally, blood tests may be given to those needing to have their blood sugar and kidney function checked. For more information, call NKF-MD at 443-322-0375 or visit www.kidneymd.org.

Overall, kidney disease affects 26 million people – that’s one in nine Marylanders. One in three American adults – 73 million people – are at risk for kidney disease, and the risk increases to one in two over the course of a lifetime.

Most people affected do not realize it until the condition has progressed. In fact, 25 percent of the 1,229 people screened last year by NKF-MD demonstrated significant results.

ABOUT NKF-MD
Serving central and western Maryland, the Delmarva Peninsula and portions of Virginia and West Virginia, the National Kidney Foundation of Maryland is the area’s only voluntary health agency dedicated to preventing kidney and urinary tract diseases, improving the health and well-being of individuals and families affected by these diseases, and increasing the availability of all organs for transplantation.

Woman’s Club of Laurel – Tampico Grill Fundraiser
Wednesday, October 19, 2016

Please join the Woman’s Club of Laurel at the Tampico Grill on Wednesday, October 19 to support our “Literacy for Little Ones” project. This project is designed to encourage a love of books at an early age.  The club purchases storybooks for toddlers through kindergarten-age children in Laurel school programs. We also provide a suggestion card for the family, with ideas on ways to encourage a cozy reading time and foster pre-literacy skills at home.  Last year, this fundraiser enabled us to buy 28 board books for toddlers in special needs classes and prepare laminated suggestion cards for families in our community.

This year, the Tampico Grill will donate 35% of all sales (including carryout) between the hours of 11:00am and 9:30pm to the Woman’s Club, who will use all the proceeds to support Literacy for Little Ones.  Please remember to mention this fundraiser to your server and put your receipt in the fundraiser bucket, so the WCL will get credit for the sale.

Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy some of the best Mexican food around while helping to engage young children in reading. Tampico is located at 42 Washington Blvd. (Rte 1 South) in Laurel, MD.  Hope to see you there!

Please mention this to friends and family, too.  Thank you for your support!
